Laurie Holden battled zombies for three seasons on The Walking Dead, but now she will take on an even tougher job — Stan Beeman’s (Noah Emmerich) love interest on The Americans, EW has confirmed.
Holden, who starred as the feisty Andrea on The Walking Dead across 35 episodes, has signed on for a recurring role on season 5 of the FX spy drama starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. On the Emmy-nominated series, the actress will play Renee, a woman new to D.C. who takes an interest in the unlucky-in-love FBI agent.
But will she get a trophy for every clone?
It’s official: Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany finally has an Emmy! The actress, who has been praised by critics and fans for years for her work as all of the Leda clones on Orphan Black — and was nominated for the first time in this category last year — took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama during Sunday’s 68th annual Emmy Awards.
“I should have written this down,” she said, trying to think of what to say. “Thank you so much. There are so many people I’m indebted to.”
Game of Thrones has another Emmy to go with that Iron Throne.
At the 68th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, the HBO hit won Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss taking home the trophy for writing “Battle of the Bastards.”
First time’s the charm!
At the 68th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday, Rami Malek won the trophy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Elliot on USA Network’s Mr. Robot.
“Please tell me you’re seeing this too,” said Malek, visibly shocked after winning. “I’m honored to stand here and represent my family and every single person who has helped me to get this far. I’m honored to work with a pure visionary in [showrunner] Sam Esmail. I wouldn’t be here without you.”
Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys may be TV’s sexiest pair of spies, but they still get nervous being intimate on their FX drama The Americans. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, real-life couple Russell and Rhys spoke about the discomfort of performing graphic sex scenes on the show.
The Americans: Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys roll into White House state dinner like real secret agents
Fiction met reality when Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys attended a state dinner at the White House Tuesday evening.
On FX’s critically acclaimed series The Americans, Russell and Rhys play undercover KGB spies living in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Obviously, they aren’t spies in real life, but they certainly looked the part when the couple strolled into the state dinner for Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, hosted by President Barack Obama.
The season finale for The Americans starts with a stakeout of William’s apartment. The feds are on to him, and he has already stolen a vial of the Lassa virus, with plans to deliver it to Philip in a meet-up at a D.C. park.
Stan Beeman and his sidekick Aderholt are right behind him, along with a surveillance chopper and countless fellow agents on the ground. He’s surrounded. And Philip is walking into a trap.
We began with the Red Creek tobacco tin, a weathered box holding a toxic agent, and the threat of catastrophe. We ended with a similar metaphor and similar peril, making for an elegant design, but with a story in which the drama was intimate and internal — the episode is a showcase for the qualities that make this year of The Americans so staggering.
WARNING: Spoilers for the fourth season of The Americans follow. Read at your own risk!
Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) are in trouble. (What else is new?) In the season 4 finale of The Americans, Gabriel (Frank Langella) warns them that because William (Dylan Baker) has been captured by the FBI, they’ve become more vulnerable than ever — which means it’s time for the Jennings to return to the motherland. But, as he points out, it’s up to them.
